Sonu Nigam, who’s in the eye of the storm with his tweets on the use of loudspeakers for Azaans at mosques, offered to apologise if his recent controversial tweets were found to be ‘anti-Muslim’. In a series of tweets clarifying his position, Nigam said: “For those who are tainting my tweets anti-Muslim, tell me one place where I have said anything related, and I’ll apologise.”

He claimed that when he spoke about loudspeakers, he had mentioned temples and gurudwaras too. Referring to a West Bengal cleric’s ‘fatwa’ offering Rs.10 lakhs to shave off Nigam’s head, the singer hit back: “Today at 2 p.m, Aalim will come to my place and shave my head. Keep your 10 lakhs ready Maulvi.”

This afternoon, the singer is likely to address the media and clarify his position on the tweets which ended up in a controversy. by Rohan Valecha
